Darkside is the collaboration project of 21-yr old hyper-minimalist electronica star Nicolas Jaar and his friend Dave Harrington. Their output sits somewhere between Krautrock and Balearic disco with undulating grooves and throbbing baselines. The duo have quickly turned their hand to Daft Punks new album releasing their own vision of their entire album, renamed Daftside. Taking all the aspiration and siphon from every drop of the original release, the reinterpretation ranges from improvisational and unpredictable instrumental cuts to moody meanderings through recognisable aspects of the originals making for a fascinating and worthwhile listen for fans of either act. All fourteen tracks can be streamed from the recently created Daftside Soundcloud page.
